Dr. Tope, Thank you so much for your care and concern of my father’s skin cancer… You are a wonderful and caring doctor. B.L.

Preparations for Mohs Surgery

Dr. Tope and his staff like to have a pre-surgical consultation with each patient prior to performing Mohs surgery for skin cancer. This pre-surgical consultation may occur during an appointment or by telephone.

At an appointment we will evaluate your medical history, examine your skin cancer, review how the day will go, and answer any questions you may have.

If you are unable to come in for an appointment, we can perform a phone consultation before your surgery date. Prior to the phone consultation, we need your biopsy report to confirm your diagnosis. Typically your referring physician will already have sent us a copy of your biopsy report. Otherwise, you as a patient may provide this report if you have a copy.

If you have already undergone Mohs surgery before, we will telephone you to ensure we have your biopsy report and answer questions relevant to your scheduled Mohs surgery.

Prior to your surgery, we strongly recommend you review the following information sheets.

The Mohs Surgery Patient Guide will answer the most commonly asked questions and explain the procedure in detail.

The Wound Care Supply List will ensure you have the materials you need to properly care for your wound after your surgery.

Thank you.
